    Need something to read

    I am running out of stuff to read, does anybody have some good tips? I like reading mysteries, thrillers etc. For relaxing and winding down, but it looks like I read all the good ones already... Open for other things, too, as long as the word 'romantic' doesn't appear anywhere...

    I'm a bit off, in that I love comedic novels full of sarcasm and impossible situations, made possible by fiction. If you have any interest in books like i'm describing, you can't go wrong with Cristopher Moore, Jasper Fforde, Craig Ferguson and Tom Holt.

    How about a James Ellroy novel? I love his hard-boiled detective stories. He wrote LA Confidential amongst others.

    Or if you're obsessed with the South as I am, anything written by James Lee Burke is fantastic.
